Pimp My Ride Games
What is Pimp My Ride?
"Pimp My Ride" was a television show on MTV in which they take a car in really bad shape and make it pretty again. They also make it highly customized toward the driver. So that, by the end of the show, they have a personal "ride" they can go around pimpin in, or whatever else they plan on doing.
Pimp My Ride is possibly MTV's most popular show worldwide. It may not get as many viewers as Real World, but nobody outside of US couches cares about Real World. Young people can be found pimping thier rides in Singapore and India. Not just Akron. You can watch the show in the MIddle East every weekday on MBC Action.
Activision made a video game version of the show which was released in 2006 on every console. It is a simulation game as well as a cult racing game. Although the reviews were horrible, IGN rated it 2.2 out of 10, fans love to play the game.
MTV Ride Primer
The MTV Ride Primer is the quickest way to get into the action, if all you really want to do is pimp your ride... RIGHT NOW! First, you choose the body style and size of the car. Then you start getting creative in your pimping approach. Do you want to give the car screaming wheels? Perhaps you should paint it blue, with a deathly skull on the hood. Change the scene and see how it looks.
